Epik High‘s most recent comeback was with their eighth studio album ‘Shoebox‘ in 2014. The album featured ‘Spoiler‘ and ‘Happen Ending‘ as title tracks, and reached the top spot on Billboard‘s World Albums chart! The album also spawned the group’s hit single ‘Born Hater‘, which featured Epik High‘s labelmates Mino from WINNER and iKON members Bobby and B.I, alongside Korean hip hop icons Beenzino and Verbal Jint.
Since making their debut back in 2003, Epik High have been at the forefront of the development of South Korea’s hip hop scene. Over the course of the past fourteen years, the group has firmly established itself as a leader in the Korean music industry.
